CEBU CITY, Philippines — The 15-year-old boy, who is one of the two suspects in the rape of two minor girls, is now under the care of a center for children in conflict with the law.

This was revealed by Police Captain Dexter Barsigo, chief of Guadalupe Police Station, in an interview with CDN Digital on Wednesday, April 10, 2019.
